RESCON, with the help of the Anti-Racism Roundtable, officially launched the #BIPOCinConstruction testimonial campaign on Nov 1st, 2021, in line with National Skilled Trades and Technology Week (Nov 1st – 5th). The purpose of this campaign is to highlight the diverse and racialized workers in construction in an effort to attract more BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) youth to our industry.
RESCON has worked hard with a team of 5 inspiring BIPOC youth to publish these testimonials. Their stories show how they got into the industry and why they like working in construction. We’ve learned a lot from them, and we’re sure you will too!
These youth are proud to work in construction. Please show your support by sharing their testimonials within your networks and on your social media accounts, using the #BIPOCinConstruction hashtag.
